tokitori_iphone_01Mobile publisher Chillingo announced this evening that they will be working with Two Tribes to bring Toki Tori to the iPhone platform.

We previewed an early build of Toki Tori back in February.

The game is a platform puzzler in which you (Toki Tori) must navigate levels in order to rescue all the eggs. Special tools are provided that can (and must) be used to solve each level. Tools can help Toki Tori move around obstacles (telewarp, bridge) or weapons to thwart enemies. The tools only have a limited number of uses so you must use them wisely.

This video is from a preview build:


[ Full HD version | Low Bandwidth version ]

The developers have indicated they are still tweaking the control systems for the game. The game was originally set for a 1st Quarter 2009 release.

    This might sound good at first that they're teaming up, but with 2 good developers in the mix I'm guessing that's gonna drive up the price of the game when its released. After all, I doubt chillingo is doing this for tt just to trade friendship pins.

    Mac - there will be no driving up of prices -- the price that TwoTribes wants to release at is the price we'll go with.
    Badboy - that deal was struck even before Chillingo came on the scene, before ZB was signed.

    Good to hear that. I hope the devs have changed their mind from what they wrote in their last blog post, effectively saying that offering players choice is a bad thing, and that their way is best, period, and that there is no room for personal preference...?!?!?!
    Honestly, I couldn't disagree more - and there's about a thousand posts on these very forums discussing the different controls in a hundred different games, where player A says control-method X is the best, whereas player B says control-method Y is best... for the same game.

    So, if it was originally intended for a Q1 release, when is it now intended to be released?

    A Q2 release ;-)

    • HardcoreEric

      Ooh no......another NFS; coming in Q1, tweaking controls, coming in Q2, updating graphics, coming in Q3. Someone needs to throw me in rehab, it seems I spend all my time waiting for my next fix. I'm gonna go get some heroin.

      • http://www.twotribes.com Two Tribes

        ;-) Obviously we want to release it ASAP as well... no point in waiting for Q3 for sure. We just can't announce a solid release date at this point in time. You'll get your fix soon ;-)

    TwoTribes - while you're here can you tell us what the introductory price for Toki Tori will be? Or do we have to be left in the dark about everything.

    • http://www.twotribes.com Two Tribes

      Pricing is still subject of debate. As soon as we know more, we'll definitely let you know.

    Most probably we'll go for $4.99 for the full game!

    Release date is unfortunately still unknown.
